Seems We Got That Separation Thing Wrong

Hmmm, they mentioned this on the Majority Report tonight as a little throw away comment, but this is pretty interesting:
Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
So the next time someone tells you that this is a "christian" nation...
